Organized Panel Session

5 - Rhetoric and Reality: Law and Piracy in the Indian Ocean

Friday, July 6
12:10 PM - 1:40 PM
Location: Silveroak I, Ground Floor

The presentation will address issues of law and sovereignty in the Indian Ocean from the middle of the eighteenth century. It will focus on notions of legal pluralism in relation to the coastal and littoral polities of western India in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It will unravel the category of predation as reflected in colonial discourse and situate it more squarely within a complex political and religious economy of coatsal Kathiawad and Cutch.
